Reckless Driving Crashes in Oxford
Reckless driving is a serious safety concern on Mississippi roadways. Across the country, nearly one-third of deadly collisions are caused by reckless drivers, contributing to over 13,000 fatal crashes each year. Human error is a factor in nearly 90% of reported car accidents in the United States. Nearly 22% of Mississippi drivers fail to wear a seatbelt while riding in a motor vehicle, increasing their risk of suffering serious injuries in a crash.
If you have been injured in a Mississippi car accident, you have the right to pursue a negligence claim for your injuries. Anyone who gets behind the wheel has to exercise reasonable care to obey the traffic laws of the State of Mississippi. Failure to do so may constitute negligence and give rise to a claim for lost damages for the injured party. The personal injury claim is a long and confusing process for those with little experience in the law, but you do not have to do it alone.
